I'd doing it either in the middle of showering, or near the end. That way the hair follicles are really soft and not rigid, making it easier to shave. And you don't have to shave over the area more than once, avoiding any more irritation. Use shaving cream. I thought I read it somewhere on here, but avoid shaving consecutive days, or something like that.

I shave before my shower but I make sure I splash my face with warm water and let the shaving cream sit for a little bit to soften up the hair but shaving during or after would also work. You can use a cleanser as a shaving cream but I find they don't work well. If the aftershave has a lot of alcohol or other irritating ingredients(which a lot do) then yes it could be breaking you, your razor could also be irritating your skin and breaking you out. I'de suggest stop using the aftershave and look for a twin blade razor and see how it works out for you. Also try to avoid shaving against the grain.
